Games24x7 seems to be on full steam as far as their product is concerned. After the recent introduction of the multi player tournament format (and a few other exciting features), Games24x7 has recently introduced the Pool Rummy format (watch out Ace2Three!).
Currently the pool format is only in the practice version. I assume this is due to Games24x7 checking out player reaction and ironing out the bugs.
What is Pool Rummy?
Pool Rummy on Games24X7 is a 2 to 6 player game, played using 2 or more packs of 53 cards each (including one printed joker per pack). In Pool Rummy, players pay a fixed entry fee which forms the prize pool. Winner of every deal gets 0 points and the rest accumulate points which are added to their score. A player is eliminated once their score reaches the maximum limit of points on the table eg: 101 Points Pool or 201 Points Pool.
Winnings in Pool Rummy = (Entry Fee) x (no. of players on the table) – Games24×7 fees
What’s New in Pool Rummy?
Auto Drop: A player is allowed to drop anytime during a Pool Rummy match by clicking on ‘Auto Drop‘ button. This player will then be dropped from subsequent deals and given the first drop score (i.e. 20 points in 101 pool or 25 points in 201 pool). If this player wishes to re-join the table, they can do so by clicking on ‘I’m Back‘ Button. The points accumulated by this player when he/she was dropped, will be added to his/her score.
Prize Split: In Pool Rummy, players can use the ‘Split‘ option if they choose to split the prize money. The split option will work as a function of number of drops remaining for a player.
The Madras high court on Thursday held that playing rummy for stakes amounts to gambling and is illegal. The court said the police could take action against people playing the 13-card game for money.
A sizeable amount of cash change hands in rummy games hosted in clubs in the city and several parts of Tamil Nadu.
A division bench, comprising Justice D Murugesan and Justice P P S Janarthana Raja, passed the order on a writ appeal by the director-general of police, the city commissioner of police, the deputy commissioner of police, T Nagar police range, and the inspector of Pondy Bazaar police station. The officials had challenged a single judge order delivered on November 4, 2011 holding that rummy was a game of skill and police could not treat it as an illegal activity.
The case started with a raid on Mahalakshmi Cultural Association in T Nagar on August 10, 2011. Police officers said they found 56 people playing rummy for stakes and seized 178 chips and Rs 6.95 lakh from them. The police charged 57 people with various gambling-related offences after the raid.
The club moved the court to seek that the police be restrained from interfering with activities of the association including the hosting of rummy games with or without stakes. The bench was also called to adjudicate whether rummy was a game of skill or of chance.
Citing a Supreme Court order governing the game, the judges said, "From the judgment of the apex court, it appears to us that if rummy is played with stakes, the police have authority to take action as per the provisions of the Chennai City Police Act, even though the game involves skill." If rummy is played without stakes, the penal provisions are not applicable, they said.
"Playing cards for stakes has two evils," the judges said. "It corrupts the mind of the players, making them addicts, and it makes most of the players bankrupt,"
If an establishment is used for this activity, it will be termed a gambling house, the judges said. "It is illegal if members or guests or the club makes a profit out of gambling."
Is this ruling going to have a big impact on the many flourishing online rummy sites? Are other states going to reference the Madras High Court ruling?
